Vanessa Hudgens is fearless when it comes to experimenting with her style.

The 32-year-old actress immersed herself in Victorian fashion on Thursday afternoon during a ‘birthday picnic’ for her artist friend Franz Szony.

Hudgens modeled a wide-brimmed straw hat with an elegant black chinstrap, along with an eccentric and pretty layered evening gown with gold pattern and black sash belt.

After capturing her own seductive look, Hudgens turned her camera toward the rest of Franz Szony’s guests and the birthday girl herself.

All the guests sat on top of a set of picnic blankets and seemed to be having a great time chatting in the shade.
